Captive is based on the true story of a junkie trying to get her daughter back who is taken hostage by a killer in her home.
It's a moderately entertaining story which is helped greatly by good performances by the leads Kate Mara and David Oyelowo. The story does fall flat in places and there is a surprising lack of tension garnered from the situation. However the actors do there best with the material and this just about elevates the film above average in my opinion. Saying that there are enough good scenes to keep you watching.
It's nothing to get excited about but it's a decent enough thriller to pass the time especially if you have never heard of the story.
